is jim lehrer of pbs. the debate is structured into a series of 15 minute questions, many focusing on the economy. the economy gets the first half of the debate, with questions 1, two, and 3. then they move on to the topic of health care, which has major economic impact, the role of government in our society, and the final segment will be on the governing cells of the candidates. jim lehrer can assign the final questions. there was a coin toss to decide who would take the first question. president obama has won that and will take the first question. we would like to involve you in the process and talk about this important debate, what you will be looking for from candidates, whether or not you have already made your decision. most particularly, if you had a chance to ask a question on this domestic policy debate, what would you most want to know from these two men? let's introduce you to our first guest. from inside the debate are -- the senior political reporter for yahoo news, who has been on the campaign trail with governor romney. >let me start with a pc filed recently, is sens
this is a moment for jim lehrerer to be very tough, respectful tough, and for president obama to come back at him and to say, look, i'm happy to see -- your running mate said he didn't have enough time on sunday. that's too bad. that's terrible, in fact. i'm willing to cede, governor romney -- >> could jim lehrer get away with simply saying i have a little liberty here, a little leeway, i will give you all the time it takes. tell us now what tax breaks you're going to get rid of. >> tell us what tax breaks you're going goat rid of and also please, governor romney, you were very upset about the 47% of americans who pay no taxes. well, they include seniors, the military, and they include the working poor. please tell me, governor romney, exactly which groups you're going to raise federal incomes taxes on of those three groups because you don't like the fact they're not paying taxes. he's a very wonderful man, a warm man, he could be tough but respectful and i think president obama should help him out by saying i'm happy to cede some of my time so you can take the time and lay out all those deductio

choice but to try to do it. we'll see where the help of jim lehrer, the moderator, exactly how he uses this moment. >> talk to you in a moment. whenever there's a big night involving politics, you can bet larry kudlow is involved. he's here on set with us. you were disappointed with mitt romney on the convention at large. is this a time to reform that. >> particularly on the economy and jobs. at the whole republican convention and mitt romney's speech set that campaign back several weeks in my opinion. they got no bump and no bounce. in fact, they probably got a negative bounce. so tonight it is incumbent on him to do two things. one is make the big picture. he's the free enterpriser and president obama is the big government planner. and those are big differences in philosophy in government. two, romney has a tax cut plan. he has a spending cut plan. he has an energy plan. he's got to make it clear. he's got to explain to people the connection between his plans and the economic recovery that we have not yet had. that's a tall order for romney. and he's going to have to fight hard for i
on domestic issues. c-span will bring you live coverage tonight. the debate gets underway at 9:00. jim lehrer is the moderator and is doing his final preparations. we would like to hear from you this morning. what questions do you have for the candidates? here are the numbers to call -- host: you can also find us online. send us a twitter message, twitter.com/c-spanwj. we have a special hash tag for this, c-span 2012. or you can e-mail us at journal@c-span.org. the opinion section of "usa today," tackling this morning's question. the number one question for president obama? it revolves around the economy. they would like to ask president obama -- "if you did not turn around the economy within three years, you said in 2009, your presidency would be one term." see: let's jump over and the top question for mitt romney. host: would you like to ask the candidates as we go over the debate. the top story this morning on the front page that we are looking at right now, "middle- class detour." the story looks at local voters, saying that the next american president will be governing a shrinking middle
. there was a long silence at the end of the phone when i presented this idea to jim lehrer. i was sure he was searching for a polite way of saying that is absolutely ridiculous that would never happen. when he finally spoke, he said, i've been sitting up there waiting for that to happen for years. but mitt romney won't propose dropping the rules, because mitt romney is a candidate with a lot to hide. mitt romney is still hiding his tax returns and mitt romney is still hiding what he wants to do to your tax returns. the deductions on your tax returns. a candidate with as much to hide as mitt romney needs to hide, needs to hide behind the rules. the rules that strictly limit the speaking times of each candidate. but mitt romney will have a two-minute final statement, just like alan alda did in the west wing presidential debate. every word alan alda said in his final statement is something that mitt romney could say tomorrow night. he could put the best possible face on republicanism in that final two minutes. it could be done. but mitt romney won't do that. because his staff is busy coming
will watch. i think jim lehrer has stayed too long. i watched him in 2008 and he looked like willie mays. he was missing the curve ball by 18 inches and he really needs to step back. yes, i will watch. i want to hear what these men have to say. that guy from berkeley springs, west virginia, carl, the old geezer, he gets through about every two weeks and complaints. one more thing, brian lamb is much better looking than you. host: i won't argue. let's go to stanley on our independent line. do you plan to watch tomorrow night's debate? caller: no. this only one thing that can save the country and that to replace the irs with a fair tax. the top 20 countries in the world, we have the worst tax system. i am in the care society, living on social security. i could have a yard sale and all tax free. i put all my money back into the country. i spread it around, all the stores i go through and so on and so forth. i am the researcher for 14 friends and relatives with documented information on who in congress want to replace the irs. there are about eight or nine of them. allen west, i'm surprised he d

the candidate to call on that? >> steve: i think it depends on the moderator. let's see how jim lehrer does. a poll out this morning, you can see among, i believe registered vote, the president within the margin of error. so it's absolutely pretty much tied. >> brian: that's just one poll. >> steve: national journal has them tied at 47%. what's interesting about the "wall street journal" thing is that apparently, according to the polling and the morning paper, a majority of americans now would like to see one party rule in washington, d.c., where one party controls the white house and both houses of congress as well. >> brian: isn't that why we broke from the king of england, so we could have some type of discussion? >> martha: it tells something about how people feel about the divisionsiveness in washington. let's give it a shot. maybe if we have the same party control in both branches and in the president, maybe we'll get somewhere. it's a sad commentary on people's ability to work together. >> brian: in florida, the polls are tightening up and in virginia, thereabout within two points of

weeks on that, chris. i think every debate moderator starting with jim lehrer tomorrow night is going to demand specifics in the way chris wallace tried to do last week on fox. and i also think that the numbers are emblematic of values in this case. people want to know about mitt romney. they're undecided. i disagree with chuck a little bit. i think people are prepared to blame the president enough to dismiss him if, as chuck says, they are secure about romney. it's that last piece that romney hasn't done, and forcing him to discuss the details of his tax plan is not a way necessarily to win those undecided voters at this point because i doubt that many of them like the idea of a big tax cut for millionaires. >> what do you think, chuck, of george wills' column where he says america will advance when it learns how to fire a black president, an african-american president. we haven't advanced that far. what do you make of this comment in his column today? like the orioles fired frank robinson. >> i have talked to a lot of republicans who believe that they do believe that there is a high
